It’s another weekend of celebration for the Durie’s boxing boys
Rutherglen boxing club Duries enjoyed a great weekend of action across three events.
Sohaib Mohammed (17) took on Hamman Saddiqe 56kg in the Masonic club in Edinburgh’s Leith Victoria show on Saturday.
The Duries man controlled the bout from the first bell, keeping him at long range behind his long left jab and won by a clear unanimous decision.
Shane Young (15) 50kg, got the nod in a bout with Morgan Strauss of Grangemouth’s Zetland club.
The Rutherglen boxer, who looked the stronger and more technical male in this fight, powered home with great head and body shots on his opponent to win by a split decision at the Stirling boxing show on Friday.
Duries had Cambuslang boxer, Gerard Mctaggart in action in Coatbridge’s Barn ABC show, where he won against local boy Reece Martin by split decision.
The 12 year old, who has now fought 25 bouts under his belt, used his experience on this show by waiting on his opponent lunging forward and counter punching to great effect.
Tickets are still on sale for Duries second show of the season at the Kings Park Hotel, Rutherglen, on December 13.
